Philipp Rudloff Hip Hop-infused jazz orchestration brought to you by Tamil Rogeon and Ryan Ritchie plus a horn band and string section. This album has a lot of variety and sometimes feels like a game/movie soundtrack. It adds up to over an hour of material. Very interesting. Favorite track: Take Me Elsewhere.

Dr. Beaf A sonic love affair. These guys have refined the art of producing complex and challenging bodies of work (albeit 6 years in the making) incredibly well. It has the same character found in their debut "Score" but the fundamental feel is distinct yet perfectly enjoyable. Lots of orchestral layers all encapsulated in a trip-hop theme that's hard to beat. Highly recommend. Favorite track: Nothing Matters.

about

The Raah Project is the musical collaboration between composer/producer/vocalist Ryan Ritchie and violinist/composer Tamil Rogeon, both originally from the Melbourne hip hop septet True Live.

In 2009 the duo went into the studio with a full 22-piece horn band and 17-piece string section and created their debut album, Score. The record was blend of jazz orchestration, soul melodies, and hip hop bump. Score was positively received by the press, both in Australia and around the world. It was welcomed by tastemakers such as Ennio Styles, Benji B and Kev Beadle. Gilles Peterson featured the track 'Trick Of The Light' on his Brownswood Bubblers Volume 5 compilation.

The band performed at festivals including Melbourne Music Week, Australasian Worldwide Music Expo and Melbourne International Jazz Festival on the back of the album release. The duo spent 2014 in the studio to give a worthy sequel to Score.

The new album, Take Me Elsewhere, of 14 tracks blends elements of electronica, jazz, hip hop and soul with cinematic orchestral soundscapes. The debut single, ‘Kill Me In The Summer’, has been described by Gilles Peterson as “Hitchcock meets Hyperdub” and by Double J Radio as “undeniable proof that Australian acts are producing some of the most exciting left-of-centre music anywhere right now”.
